    Everything electric on the front passenger door of my 2002 525i suddenly stopped working, including door lock, window, mirror and downlight. Can't be a fuse, because there are several circuits involved, and everything not in the right front door works fine. The window won't open with either...

    E60 / E61 (2004 - 2010)
    OK, so on Memorial Day I had a cooler tip over in my trunk. I lost all audio because the water went in under the spare tire and fried all the electronics under there.
